Dustin Urdaneta purchased the 1993 Honda Del Sol Si as his first car in 2002, "I was just 16 years old," Urdaneta remembers. Inspired by other modified cars he had seen, right around the time the first Fast & Furious movie made its debut, Urdaneta worked closely with his father to wrench on the car. Today, his father is the motivation behind his build.

"I got involved in the car scene when I was younger," mentions Urdaneta, "by having friends that were in the car scene already and had started to customize Preludes, Integras and hatchback Civics."

Urdaneta stayed the course and refused to give up on his Del Sol, and realized that after seeing all these modified vehicles he had to do his Del Sol a solid.
